For the last issue of their openSUSE release series, Novell Open Audio has talked to Marcus Meißner, team lead of the SUSE security team, to learn about the processes triggered by a security incidence, proactive source code audits, teaching developers how to write more secure software and AppArmor.

    How long must we wait OpenOffice’s Suse-packets’s security-update to 2.3-version?
    OO.o-version find but OpenSuse-version not.

      What vulnerability and distro version are you talking about? There was an OOo online update only two days ago.

    That was fixed with mentioned online update two days ago. Do your homework/update before accusing.

    I works every day With openSuse inkl OpenOffice my office and home. We have only 15 computer, but we can’t weit if your’s (will) security-problems fix many days or weeks. Now it takes 7 days, even touch Beineri sad otherwise…
    sorry wath I must say! 7 days is to lang for fixing very critical security-problems!
